Scientific Note: 


List of the Nocturnal Lepidoptera of §irvan 
with new faunal records to Siirt Province and Turkey 



Muhabbet Kemal Erdem Seven 

Within the field programs of the year 2008, the second author visited §irvan District in Siirt 
Province (East Turkey)^ on 28 April, 2008, in order to contribute to the provincial fauna of the 
Lepidoptera. Due to the heavy rain and storm in the province, number of the specimens collected is 
very limited. The materials were collected in [1] §irvan city (1000m) and [2] Madenkoy (1300m). 
Others belong to Ormanbagi (1070) in the §irvan District. 

In the following list, totally 47 species are given alphabetically under the related 10 families. 
New 8 faunal records to the Siirt Province are marked with #. Drepanopterula limaria (Chr.) is 
reported here as new to Turkey. As result of this total number of the Lepidopteran species recorded 
in §irvan District reached to 96. On the other hand, the provincial number is 251. 

The faunal field studies in the province have been continuing.

The remote areas of the Eastern Turkey, including Siirt Province are currently extremely dangeous for the night studying, due to the terrorist 
activities. Our field surveys have been carrying out under these circumstances for years. For details visit the official Web Page of the Turkish General
